Sounds Of Two Eyes Opening
Legendary hardcore producer and engineer Spot (Misfits, Black Flag, Hüsker Dü, Minutemen etc.) is a master photographer. Sinecure Books is bafflingly proud to be the first to introduce the world to Spot’s photographic narrative.
Edited by Johan Kugelberg and Ryan Richardson, Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is a narrative of Southern California chiaroscuro: all the shots of punks and bands and clubs are dark swatches of blacks and grays with brief illuminations of white skin, bringing about a general claustrophobic cul-de-sac feeling. These images sit in contrast to the wide open endlessness of Spot’s beach photographs: beauty, youth and body worship, white teeth, big hair, the eternal trilogy of sun/sand/sea, the promise of the unbroken horizon.
Spanning the late 1960s through the early 1980s, Sounds of Two Eyes Opening offers an amazing portrait of Southern California coastal life: surfing, bikinis, roller skating and skate boarding’s fledgling days are set in contrast to iconic shots of all the key denizens of hardcore punk rock as it is being invented; candid shots of Black Flag, The Germs, Minutemen abut those of everyday punks, fans, cops, clubs and now-shuttered rehearsal spaces.
Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is presented as a hardbound, 272 page book, printed on matte art paper, with 4-color black-and-white printing, a lay flat binding.
